Additional distribution: Native in Australia; introduced in Chile, Colombia, Europe, Guadeloupe, Mexico, USA. Host plant: Acacia  and Albizia  species, ( Jensen 1957 b; Munro 1965; Burckhardt 1989). Remarks: First recorded in California in 1954 ( Jensen 1957 b; Beardsley et al. 1995). Predators: Diomus pumilio (Weise)  (black lady beetle, Coleoptera  : Coccinellidae  ), Anthocoris nemoralis (Fabricius)  (pirate bug, Hemiptera  : Anthocoridae  ) ( Dreistadt et al. 2004). Six predaceous insect species have been introduced into California to control Acizzia uncatoides ( Dreistadt & Hagen 1994)  .

Parasitoids: Jensen (1957 a) recorded this species in California, and published two associated encyrtid parasitoids, Cheiloneurus  sp. and Psyllaephagus  sp., but he noted that Cheiloneurus  are primarily associated (as hyperparasitoids) with soft scales ( Coccidae  ) and may be secondary Parasitoids of psyllids.
